Some schools still paddle


A current  proposal to allow spanking of unruly students in Greenville public schools brings to mind the old song, written in 1907 by Will Cobb and Gus Edwards.

The chorus goes:

School days, school days

Dear old Golden Rule days

'Reading and 'riting and 'rithmetic

Taught to the tune of the hick'ry stick

Magee Chamber: Laura Lynn Barr

On the second part of the series, I want to focus on the Magee Chamber of Commerce Vice President, Laura Lynn Barr.

Laura Lynn runs Sta-Home Health and Hospice located off Highway 49 and was elected as a director on the Chamber of Commerce board at the same time as I was back in 2016.

Eli deserved better


Eli Manning deserved better from the Giants last Friday, 12/1/2017.  It's no surprise when a football team that's having a bad season benches its quarterback. With that said, the way the New York Giants treated Eli Manning this week is shameful.
